Key Losses: WR Colin Gilbert, WR Brian
The Nighthawks leave the 4A ranks
where they were 9-3 and jump into the 5A2 Southern Region. Definitely the
biggest loss will be the pass-catch combo of Bobby Farley to Colin Gilbert.
Gilbert will be walking on at
Cherry doubles as one of southern
The ‘Hawks JV squad went 4-4 and have some linemen that could develop into quality players with some hard work.
Ridge quietly has been one of the top teams in 4A over the past few years; don't expect much of a drop-off. They have tough games against Buena, Casa Grande, Salpointe and Sunnyside. If they can pull a win or two off then they may find themselves in the playoffs in their first year in 5A.
